Work to start on Lake Eden upgrade
Words by Nick Crockford

Lake Eden, in the heart of North Lakes, will soon undergo a major $1.5 million transformation.

Work will include a new civic space, picnic areas, playgrounds and car parking. The arbour area will also be “enhanced”.

Lake Eden is no longer just a recreation area for locals, it’s become a regional attraction and I’m proud Council is continuing to invest in its evolution to ensure it remains modern and meets the expectations of our community,” Acting Mayor Jodie Shipway said.

“The facilities here are about 20 years old now and its popularity has truly surged over the last two decades.

Attractive space

“I’m very keen to see a cleverer use of the lakefront space with new picnic areas and playgrounds to turn this into a more dynamic and attractive civic space.

“Rest assured this will include an enhancement of the beautiful arbour area, I know this space holds treasured memories for many locals especially those who have been married there.

“We also need much better carparking, on Saturdays alone you’ll see 200-300 parkrunners down there, so it’s essential that we keep pace with that kind of demand."

Work to start on Lake Eden upgrade

The Glascotte Landscape tender was approved today. Construction will start in June 2023, and will take 26 weeks to complete.

Funding includes $462,500 from the Federal Government, as part of COVID19 funding to stimulate local economies.

At today’s council meeting, the tender for spectator seating with shade was also approved at Kinsellas Sports Complex in North Lakes.

Club boost

The $890,000 project was awarded to The Landscape Construction Company which will start work at North Lakes United Football Club next month.

Around half the funding has come from the State Government’s South-East Queensland Community Stimulus Program.

The $350,000 tender for precast concrete decks was also approved as part of the Wight Patch-Wrights Creek Crossing upgrade at Bribie Island.

It will form part of the work to repair the cross which was damaged in floods last year.
